Reality star and creator of the Discovery channel series Gold Rush documenting miners in the Yukon territory of Canada. It was together with he and his inexperienced friends that he began his rocky mining career.
He came up with the idea to begin gold mining after watching the decline of his aviation business in Oregon and the regular rise of gold prices in the stock market.
In 2014, he and his crew mined more than 1000 ounces of gold.
He is joined on Gold Rush by his father, Jack, who mined for gold in the 1980s. His son Hunter is also a member of the mining crew. He has a sister named Tamra.
Both he and Parker Schnabel are stars on the Discovery series Gold Rush.
